Cape Town - Three men appeared in the Western Cape High Court on Friday in connection with the kidnapping, rape, and murder of a 6-year-old girl.

They stood in the dock for the crimes against Asemahle Ntsabo in Paarl last January.

Their pre-trial conference was postponed for a week.

The defence team requested that their trial be set down for 8 April to 2 May.

Ntsabo was playing with friends on 21 January last year when she went missing in Mbekweni.

Her remains were found two months later between bushes near railway tracks in the area.

The trio were linked to the scene by forensic evidence.

According to the summary of facts document, Ntsabo was killed by strangulation.

The State alleges that the trio acted in conspiracy to kidnap, kill, and remove the girl's body parts.
